As a lot of you know, we're having a heat wave in New England these last couple of days... He worked outside from 7-11 am today...fixing the dog pen and moving some empty animal houses around the yard. So he came in to lay down for a bit because he had a bad headache..(the headache got so bad he was holding his head and kinda wimpering curled in a ball....).... then he starts to vomit... alot. And i couldnt get him to keep any fluid down... it kept coming back up.. The last straw was he was getting confused, i was talking to him and he wasnt responding correctly..... then he stood up and i said "where are you going" And he didnt answer me..just looked at me all dumb like..... then i looked at his face and knew he was going down.. I hopped up to try to catch him..but i didnt reach him in time and he fell face down >> ..half on the bed and half on the floor. I shook him and he still didnt respond right away... Finally he came around as i was turning him over... (he dosent remember passing out..) I was FREAKING (in my head..) thinking he had a heart attack or something... a million things were going through my mind... "I dont know CPR well enough to save him" , " Should i give him an aspirin in case its his heart?", What if its not his heart and i make the bleeding worse with an aspirin (in case of stroke..)?"..." What do i DO!!?" "How will I ever live without him?"... Thats a scary place to be.. So i called my aunt at the station and she sent out the EMTs.. They took one look at him and took his vitals and said..yup.. you're coming with us buddy... They think heat stroke and dehydration.. Everything on his heart came back okay. Thankfully. The doc gave him a little lecture about this weather.. and how dangerous it really is. Hes fine now... we're home and hes resting. I told him that we ARE taking a CPR class after this scare... Anyways... even though ( thankfully) everything turned out fine... i just wanted you folks to know how VERY dangerous this type of heat can be. It can damage your organs and even kill you. Just be careful in this weather guys. The doc said IF you HAVE to be out in this weather... water will NOT suffice. You need water and gatorade..(electrolytes..)..one after the other.. and EVEN something extra salty..like pretzels.
